THERMOPSIS RHOMBIFOLIA MONTANA
Erect stems of bright yellow pea-like flowers (hence the "False Lupin" garden name), stand amongst purplish stems of bright green palmate leaves - quite a dazzling summer display! The flowers are followed by silky brown seed pods which are attractive too. The plant is clump-forming and gently spreading as in the picture, and also attractive to pollinating insects, butterflies etc., preferring a sunny spot. It will be a lovely feature in your herbaceous border or wildlife garden.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
